Kevin Gilbert at Indiana U (no relation to me) develops and distributes
PCMODEL (I assume it is the same PCMODEL).  He can be reached
via e-mail to Gilbert at UCS.Indiana.Edu.

I'm not overly familiar with this program.  However, Kevin does
have versions of it for MSDos-PC, Silicon Graphics, Sun, Mac,
and maybe other platforms (not VMS I think).  When I looked at
it once, Kevin was able to put PDB (Brookhaven?) format files
into it.  I don't know if this is a standard feature or something
